How to Fix Start Menu Problems on the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

After upgrading to the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, a number of users have been reporting a few problems with the Start menu. Some users have been complaining about app icons and Live Tiles are missing, and even doing a search icons won't come up in the result, but apps are still installed and working. Also, a few other people have said that the Start menu is simply not working after installing version 1709.

If you're noticing some apps missing or the Start menu is just not working, there are a few things you can try to fix this problem on the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

You can try reinstalling the apps so that they can register properly with the Start menu.

You can try to resolve this issue by using PowerShell.

1. Open Start Menu.
2. Type PowerShell, right-click the result, and select Run as administrator.

Type the following commands to re-register the missing built-in Windows 10 apps and press Enter on each line:

Code:

reg delete "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\TileDataModel\Migration\TileStore" /va /f

get-appxpackage -packageType bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + "\appxmetadata\appxbundlemanifest.xml")}

$bundlefamilies = (get-appxpackage -packagetype Bundle).packagefamilyname

get-appxpackage -packagetype main |? {-not ($bundlefamilies -contains $_.packagefamilyname)} |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + "\appxmanifest.xml")}


If you're dealing with an app you installed using the Store, you can reinstall the app using the following steps:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Click on Apps.
  3. Click on Apps & features.
  4. Select the app in question, and click the Uninstall button.
  5. Click the Uninstall button again to confirm.

Once you've completed the steps, open the Store, search for the app, and click the Install button, and now the app should appear in the Start menu.
